Mattawang Golf Club has changed very little since it first opened in 1960. The traditional layout has withstood the test of time as a challenging but playable layout. The course was designed to blend seamlessly into the natural setting while still testing your shot-making skills. You won’t find any man-made water hazards or artificial mounding on this golf course, instead you’ll be challenged by natural streams and ponds and mature evergreens. At first glance, the layout is seemingly wide open, but don’t let your guard down because the fairways are actually quite tight and many of them are strategically lined with trees. In keeping with the time it was built, the greens are smaller than those you would find on most modern golf courses and heavily protected by sand traps. Over the years, Mattawang Golf Club has built a reputation for having some of the well maintained putting surfaces in the area.

Wonderful Day On The Course

Been playing here for the last 2.5 years and still find the course as challenging and exciting as I did day 1. The layout forces you think about every shot. Holding chips on the green and putting on fast greens are tough. Fairways and greens are in great shape overall. There are some wet, mushy spots due to the rains but they don't take away from the gameplay. Today was slow play as a single for during the week but they let me jump ahead. I'm a 7-9 handicap and typically shoot low to mid 80s there.

The course is kept up nicely especially the greens at this point in the year. Fairways unfortuntely had some significant damage spots. Nice course but a tiny bit overpriced for how the fairways were looking.

Kyle, thanks for your thoughts. The fairway damage you point out is fairly limited and is flood damage from a few weeks ago.

Nice layout

Not a lot of trees but the narrow fairways made it challenging. A lot of people playing from adjacent fairways due to slice/hook. Course was in excellent shape, very good greens. I pre-paid through Golf Now so I didn't have much interaction with the staff. No grill, liquor license or drink cart, but I would play there again. There is a driving range and putting green.

Rolando, the range was open and quite busy on Saturday. The driveway coming into the property runs along side of the range.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review, hopefully next time you can enjoy the range as well.

Tougher than it appears

Course is in immaculate condition. While not the longest course I have played, the blue tees did offer difficult looks and long irons to the greens that did not hold the ball.

Strongly recommend that you play the par 3s carefully. These can be really difficult along with some long par 4s on the back nine.

Thank you for trying Mattawang. We appreciate your well thought out review.

The course does play harder then it looks both on the scorecard and in person. There are some subtle design aspects that are not often seen in modern designs. Enjoy the remainder of the season!
